Oh No, George!

By Chris Haughton
Illustrated by Chris Haughton

It's hard work being good all the time – and it's especially hard for a dog like George!

A board book edition of the hilarious read-aloud romp by the multiple award-winning author-illustrator of A Bit Lost and Shh! We Have a Plan, this is the story of George the dog. His owner, Harris, is off to do some shopping. "Will you be good, George?" he asks his dog. George hopes he can. He really wants to ... but chocolate cake is just so very delicious and he does love to chase cat... What will George do now? Shortlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal and the Roald Dahl Funny Prize, Chris Haughton's distinctive artwork perfectly accompanies the innocent charm of affable George, a dog trying to be good – with hilarious results!

  • This is the second picture book from rapidly rising star Chris Haughton, whose bold art and psychedelic colour palette appeal to young children and parents alike.
  • A Bit Lost was winner of the 2011 Eil s Dillon award and Bisto Children's Book of the Year Award.
  • "Howlingly funny, its luridly elegant illustrations will be in frequent demand; ideal for parents and grandparents to read aloud." - Times
